Re: I need some help location a load data
Ageed!. Check it out to see that there is nothing down the barrel. Joe had it right on the loads. Does the barrel say Investarms on it?
I'd say a 490 or 495 ball and you'll have to experiment for patch thickness. I've had luck with just heavy cotton flannel, rather than a palm bruising tight weave canvas type cloth. My 54 hawken is from Investarms and shoots pretty darn good considering one of the grooves isn't cut. (It was a second, I got the barrel for free and cobbled the gun together from various parts. Some TC, some Lyman, some who knows where. After 30 years I still never bothered finishing the kit stock.)
